The Australian actor plays the bad boy Billy in Stranger Things season 2. 

And now the actor is letting us all know how he bagged the role which includes him wearing a thong and some dancing. 

The Power Rangers actor released his audition tape via GQ

Speaking about his audition to GQ he said that he really wanted to make an impression on the creators, The Duffer Brothers. 

"I got up, kinda went crazy, shaved all my hair off around my face except for my mustache. During the day, I made everything else happen — the dancing and the rest, going out in the G-string and just playing around with it," says Dacre.

And the video worked; he got the call back from the creators almost immediately.
